Why Thanh Thuy (aka Bluewater Restaurant) is special ?
The Thanh Thuy Bluewater is a local favourite mainly because of its great food, ranging from Vietnamese to Chinese and Western dishes. People can enjoy their meals overlooking Xuan Huong Lake. Some dishes can be expensive but overall prices on the menu are sometimes reasonable.
A stylish lakeside location for coffee, cocktails, or a meal, either on the deck under one of the purple umbrellas or inside, Thanh Thuy has an extensive menu (in English) of Vietnamese, Szechuan, and Vietnamese twists on Western dishes. Prices are quite high for Vietnam but there's no better view in town. The service can seem slow if you're not used to the local style of flagging a water down when you need one, rather than waiting for service.
How to get to Thanh Thuy (aka Bluewater Restaurant)?
The Thanh Thuy Bluewater is a short walk from Da Lat Market. From the market, walk along Nguyen Thi Minh Khai and then turn left to Tran Quoc Toan Street to find the restaurant. You can also take a taxi to get there.

Tips for you
We were one night in Dalat during our motorcycle tour of the Central Highlands and were luck to stumble into the Thanh Thuy Blue Water Restaurant. We had been out walking and spied this place down on the lake and thought we'd pop there for a much needed cafe sua da. We nabbed the last table outside with the most gorgeous view across the lake and placed our order. Unfortunately it started raining, so we quickly headed inside. Once we looked at the menu, we decided on an early dinner and what a good decision that was. We ordered red tilapia deep fried szechuan style and greens with fermented soya - absolutely delicious. The fish was one of the best we've ever eaten - a beautifully fleshy fish which was battered and deep fried with the szechuan sauce then on top - which made the batter caramelised and like nothing I've ever tasted before - sublime. The fermented soya greens were also a first to us and again they were delicious. Washed down with the cafe sua's and a few beers, we totally enjoyed our meal here. Yes it's not as cheap as street eating, but sometimes you just want to sit in a nice restaurant and feel a little special and this place certainly did that for us.
Best view in Dalat, comes perfect with a glass of local red wine (surprisingly light). Nice mix of Chinese / Vietnamese cuisines.
